Dear ShaneO,

I'm looking for the gravestones of acquaintances of my grandfather, Gunder Anderson. Both served in WWI and both had roots in Selbu, Norway.

You have posted information for Martin Parelius Borseth, but the post for him does not include a cemetery. Based on the date he was killed, July 19, 1918, he was likely killed in the Second Battle of the Marne (Aisne-Marne Offensive). The nearest American cemetery to this battle is the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, near Belleau, France.

Would it be possible to temporarily assign his grave to this cemetery? I would then like to request someone search this cemetery to see if his grave exists. If they find it, I can only assume they would post the picture for it. If they can't find it, I would contact you and you could change it back to unknown.

Let me know whether this is acceptable to you.

I appreciate your help!

Bryan Anderson

The Belgium memorial is a Cenotaph Memorial and all the information had been posted in that memorial to shows he is now buried in Denton, MD. I bolded the information so others would not miss it. I also bolded information in his Denton memorial as well. So he does have 2 memorials - a real one and a Cenotaph.

RE: Clayton Lee Adams
If the memorials are merged, who will managed the single memorial? The contributor who created the original doesn't respond when I have asked info to be added to his memorials. The contributor who created the "duplicate" not only recorded the historical info provided by a soldier who saw Clayton's temporary grave soon after his death, but he also added the information about my father. Even though I am a relative, I am not within the Find A Grave guidelines, so it wouldn't be transferred to me. So, for these reasons, I'd rather have the duplicates.

Please copy the obit info to his original memorial -- I had found the obit to add and the memorial that it is attached to was transferred to me (assumed it was the original memorial)

My veterans virtual cemeteries
Hi Shane:

I've just put together virtual cemeteries for all the major conflicts on my profile page, so feel free to take a look. I don't have them separated by served or KIA--there's far too many for me to do them that way, and I just don't have the time. I'm adding to them as I go along, so feel free to check back.

Happy Holidays,

Shane I have one I could use some help on. Leander M. Young died in World war II he was from Grand island Nebraska and I found him buried in South Dakota Find A Grave #106389154. I am trying to prove his father Find A Grave #50510757 same name was killed in World War I in 1918 in France. Not used to working on World War I heroes do you have any leads. Thanks . If my hunch is right the son was born the same year his Father was killed. Thanks for any help you can give me. Loren

Find A Grave Memorial# 37233186

A poster (with some very poor pictures) of Mr Rydeen's canteen during WWII is at my local VA Hospital. I also found an article about Mr Rydeen on line (

Was going to post both, but album size is maxed out with the 5 photos that are on his memorial.

Please let me know if you'd like these items for addition to his memorial.

Shane, Shaw appears as part of this crew and is mentioned in several forums as being KIA with this crew on this date. On the USAAF web site state is listed as unknown. That usually means that something may be wrong with the record keeping.
but i feel that this is the same guy.

RE: James A Riley
Sorry. He had no marker. Two of us have walked the entire cemetery and photographed the entire cemetery and found no marker. The book of markers printed in 1965 by the sexton states does not list him therefore he had no marker in 1965. i am aware that a marker was ordered for him but no kne knows what happened to it. Nothing else can be done. The internment does list him so we know that was a grave purchased in 1949. He is buried with his parents also no marker for them

Yes. All the information of this gentleman is of his family(?). I'm sad the military did not mark his grave.

Wayne Anderson
I want to share...Sgt. Wayne W. Anderson was interred on 12/4/48. He is in section D/178/3- no marker. Also, if this is the correct one, he has a Jean Anderson next to him in D/178/2- interred in on 2/24/67 & she is next to Thomas J. Anderson- D/178/1- interred in on 1/3/68.

Please let me know if you create memorials for his family.

I cannot understand why he did not recieve a marker.

Take care! Tina

RE: Inverness Cemetery
Hi ShaneO,
As you know by now, I did in fact locate the grave you requested and posted it. Because of the nature of the request, several people got involved with this and there were several foot searches by several different persons. I've updated the Inverness City's records and also have an additional veteran's grave site photo that lies adjacent to Mr. Cato. If you would like to create a memorial for him, please let me know. Sorry to have taken so long to track down this marker, sometimes these things take time and effort. From all those involved, we hope this helps your research/catalog/family records and on behalf of the people involved, we thank young Mr. Cato for his sacrifice... we hope he is at least resting in peace in paradise.

Hi Shane, I must say that I am so very impressed with the fantastic effort you are putting in! I try to do what little I can to clean up around a veteran's grave and their marker, take and post as many photos here as I can. I came across SSgt Roberson's marker yesterday and was humbled to be in the presence of a gentleman that went in on the first wave of D-Day and gave all he had. I posted the picture I took to your memorial. Thank you so very much for what you are doing!

Best regards,
